Title:

Embera Drua, Chagres River, Panama.

Caption:

Wounan people are famous crafters. It is believed that they were the original basket weavers and wood carvers of the Darien region. Today most indigenous groups produce versions of their canastas and cocobolo carvings. The Embera people have adopted the techniques and have expert artists of their own. Here an Embera elder carves a figure out of some tropical wood.
